Hannah More to Mrs Carrick
Mrs. Carrick with a Pair of Card Racks
The love of the Donor gives worth to the Present,
Tho’ the last is but trifling, the first is most pleasant.
My Cards are for Visits, not gambling I trow;
The Gift in itself is just nothing I know.
Not Clubs, Spades, or Diamonds can here have a part
Tho’ these are excluded it comes with a Heart.
